"Fingers Crossed" is a song by Billie Eilish that was exclusively released on her SoundCloud account.

Background Edit

Billie stated in an interview that this is the first song that she wrote. It was written for a songwriting class that her mom taught. The assignment was for her to write down lines that she thought were good hooks, titles, or names while watching a movie or TV show.

Theme Edit

The song was written about a zombie apocalypse, inspired by The Walking Dead, which was Billie's favorite show at the time. Although not intentional, the song came out as a love song.

Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
In the end, when they're all gone
When the world is silent and the days are long
Just you and I, we'll be alive
We made it on our own

[Chorus]
'Cause everybody makes it 'till they don't
And everybody wants to think they won't
'Cause everybody makes it 'till they don't
And everybody seems to think they won't, they won't, they won't, they won't

[Verse 2]
Baby, I'm still alive but my heart is beating slow
Baby, tell me I gotta know
Are you okay? You seem too far gone
Infected, standing there all alone

[Chorus]
'Cause everybody makes it 'till they don't
And everybody wants to think they won't
And everybody makes it 'till they don't
And everybody seems to think they won't, they won't, they won't, they won't

[Post-Chorus]
The best of me, the best of me is you
The best of me, the best of me was you

[Outro]
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Ladum, badum, mmmm
